Upcoming Samsung smartwatch is codenamed “Solis”, runs Tizen
Back in January, the Korea Herald reported that a new Samsung Gear S watch is planned for announcement at the IFA 2016 conference in Berlin. Now, a new leak suggests that the upcoming device is codenamed “Solis” - the Latin word for “sun” - and that it runs Samsung's proprietary OS Tizen.

Earlier this year, Swiss watchmaker Grisogono revealed that it will again be teaming up with Samsung to build a luxury limited edition of the upcoming smartwatch. Grisogono was also the company behind the limited Gear S2 series.

Along with the codename, model numbers for the new S watch were outed. They are: SM-R760, SM-R765, SM-R770, SM-R765V, and SM-R765S, with the last two probably reserved for carrier variants (V for Verizon, S for Sprint?). There is no info on specs yet.

Just put better updated software on gear S, newer internal specs and sell it. Many don't even know that this beast exists.

I think that in latin Sol is for Sun or sunlight and Solis is for the overcast

NO! You dont need another toy. Why not support the ones you have better. The original Gear S was totally abandoned and you still trying to make more watches. The original Gear Fit was abandoned too. No updates no nothing. Stop making these useless things Samsung and support the ones you already have. Still waiting on Samsung Pay for the Gear S2. How long before that happens? Was suppose to have by now, still nothing.

Is there a need for a new watch every year?

Dear Samsung, make these watches thinner! I will never buy one of these smartwatches because they are too thick like all the others.
